What is solid radium silver?

I've inherited two butter knives that are stamped -

SIMMONS
SOLID
RADIUM SILVER

Just what is radium silver, and when was this term used?

Re: What is solid radium silver?

I don't know, but I have some spoons as well. I checked, and they are not radioactive, so no real radium is involved. Have you found anything out since you posted your query last year?
